Fans of Pink Floyd are in for a treat as Brit Floyd, often hailed as one of the world’s greatest live Pink Floyd experiences, is set to perform at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 9, at the Findlay Toyota Center, 3201 Main St, Prescott Valley.

Brit Floyd’s latest tour, named P·U·L·S·E, promises to be their most ambitious production yet, featuring a blend of Pink Floyd’s timeless classics from albums such as “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “The Wall,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Animals,” “The Division Bell,” and “Meddle.” This tour is a celebration and faithful recreation of Pink Floyd’s legendary Division Bell tour, complete with a stunning laser and light show, the iconic circular screen, inflatables and theatrics.

Taking to the stage to deliver note-for-note renditions of classic Pink Floyd tracks is a band of musicians who have earned worldwide love and respect. Leading the group is guitarist, vocalist and musical director Damian Darlington, who has performed in over 2,500 Pink Floyd-related concerts throughout his career. The band also includes Ian Cattell, Edo Scordo, Canadian Idol winner Eva Avila and other expert musicians who have joined Brit Floyd over the past decade.

Darlington, the band’s founder, shared insights during an interview about why Brit Floyd stands out among so many other Pink Floyd tribute bands.

“Brit Floyd started in 2011, but I was in another Pink Floyd show for 17 years prior to that,” Darlington said. “I suppose one of the things that sets it apart is three decades experience spent recreating the music of Pink Floyd. I’ve definitely played more professional Pink Floyd related shows than any other person on the planet and that includes the members of Pink Floyd themselves.”

His previous experience with the Australian Pink Floyd Show further honed his skills and vision for Brit Floyd, allowing him to craft a unique and immersive experience for fans.

“There’s an attention to detail involved in what we do in every aspect of the show, not just the music, but the lights, the lasers, the video, all the ingredients that go into making a Pink Floyd concert experience,” he said. “It was a desire to do things a little differently with different musicians to recreate Pink Floyd music. I just felt that the time was right to do so. I’d done almost 20 years with the Australian Pink Floyd show, and I thought, ‘Why not start my own one?’”

Brit Floyd aims to stay true to the spirit of Pink Floyd’s music while also injecting their own musical personality into the performance.

“You can make decisions about whether you want to sound like the original studio album or maybe a live track off ‘Pulse’ or ‘Delicate Sound of Thunder’ or even ‘Is There Anybody Out There,’” Darlington said. “I think there’s also room for us to put a bit of our own musical personality into what we do here and there. I think that’s important.”
